Croyde & Putsborough Food and Drink
Croyde is a charming little village equidistant from both Braunton to the south and Woolacombe to the north, meaning quality local restaurants are in plentiful supply. The Thatch in Croyde village itself is a wonderful restaurant and pub serving spectacularly good pub grub. As the name suggests, the building is a delightfully preserved thatched property, complete with large beer garden and outdoor seating. Inside you will be treated to a warm North Devon welcome, and a varied menu which is competitively priced. (Don’t forget to give a few of the local ales a try!)
Billy Budds is just a couple of doors down from the Thatch and equally popular. They serve a good selection of burgers, pizzas and fish and chips. It is also worth noting, they have a separate Tapas menu, which is well worth a try.
Next to Redwood Surf Shop, you will find another of Croyde’s highly esteemed restaurants, Blue Groove. Locally sourced seafood and Exmoor reared meats are freshly prepared, and there is ample seating both inside and outside for those warm summer’s evenings.
Although the village of Georgeham is relatively small with just a village shop dotted on the main street. In terms of restaurants and pubs, Georgeham doesn’t have many but what it does have is extremely high quality and well worth a visit. . The Kings Arms situated in the heart of Georgham is perfect if you’re looking for a quick snack, lunch time sandwich or something more substantial (it has an excellent reputation for its Sunday Roasts). And The Rock Inn, a 17th Century Inn boasts real ales, an extensive wine list and fantastic fresh food, made only with the best local produce.
